We as a nation are watching the country of Pakistan, a primary ally of the United States, in a state of emergency and now under martial law. This, in my opinion, is a condition that the United States, through thoughtful deployment of our armed forces could have helped to avoid - yet when we had the chance to completely decimate the Taliban and Al Qaeda, your Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, answering to you and Vice-President Dick Cheney - allowed both of the above terrorist entities to escape from Tora Bora by allowing the Afghanistan Military, as ill-trained as they were, to conduct the final mop-up of the remaining insurgents in Afghanistan and the Central Commands refusal to commit the necessary troops to finalize the destruction of Taliban and Al Qaeda elements, which allowed many of them to escape into the northern tribal areas of Pakistan and again become a threat to US interests, Pakistan itself, and now the fight in Afghanistan is almost as fierce as it was when we first began.
It is common knowledge that Pakistan has a substantial nuclear arsenal, and by and through the incompetence of the White House and the Department of Defense, then headed by Donald Rumsfeld - we allowed this to happen and instead turned our military might on Iraq, who had no weapons of mass destruction and had absolutely nothing to do with the events that transpired on 9-11.
Present Bush and Vice-President Dick Cheney - you have both failed this nation miserably, and as a private citizen that predicted this development in Pakistan, I personally condemn both of you for failing our nation in a time of war. No one yet knows how Pakistan will weather this crisis, but I wholeheartedly support the people of Pakistan that are attempting to stave-off radical Islam, and we as a nation are aware that it was your decisions that allowed this unprecedented spiral of Pakistan into anarchy - and whatever the consequences may be, you both stand responsible for Pakistan’s fate.
Through experience we have learned that radical Islam spreads like a cancer, and through your own words we know this, as well as our continued monitoring of this situation in Pakistan and other nations who are fighting radical Islam. You both state that you support our troops and are attempting to make America safer; by your very actions, which reek of utter incompetence and greed, you have failed the people of the United States, the world, and especially those who trusted your judgment. These events in Pakistan could easily destabilize the Middle-East even more than your actions have already done - and the people of the United States should rise-up in unison and condemn your actions and incompetence.
Please Mr. Bush and Cheney - your time to lead this nation has come and gone; you have demonstrated that you have no respect for our own Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and the Rule of Law. Not only have you violated our own laws and the trust of a nation, in addition to the many international laws and treaties you’ve violated your decisions have negatively impacted several nations throughout the world - and over a million Iraqis and thousands of our own troops now lie dead because of your miscalculations, incompetence, and violation of International Law. If you care for this great nation as you state you do - it’s time for both of you to resign so that we can begin to rebuild this shattered nation, and at the same time, mitigate the damage your administration has caused throughout the world!
America as a nation should rise-up and demand your resignation, and those of us that do not are contributing to the downfall of the country our forefathers fought and died for - something that you refused to do during the Vietnam War, staying comfortably in the US while more then 58,000 of America’s best lost their lives in the Vietnam War. We need a President with the will to guide this nation by and through the tenants as set forth in our constitution - not as they are interpreted by a tyrant and Dictator. I call upon our Congress and the American people to demand your resignations - and if that does not happen forthwith, then it is now the time to begin impeachment proceedings. This nation, nor the world, can stand much more of your incompetence and violation of our sacred laws and spirit of freedom and liberty - and I respectfully call for both of your resignations as a free person and citizen of the United States of America!
